RE: svn:keywords - turn on by default

From my observations there is the mime type that SVN seems to detect
pretty good. That could be used for exclusion.

CVS has those exclusion files, or where those inclusion files?

Why not using a similar configuration or feature?

One of the reasons this is not done is for binary assets. You
wouldn't want a keyword replacement to automatically be done on a
shared library or image that randomly happened to contain any of the
keywords, which would break the file.

Use the svn_apply_autoprops.py script to run it across a working copy.
